Never underestimate the power of a dazzling smile.

Losing your teeth doesn’t have to mar your smile forever. Thanks to significant advancements in dentistry, including the introduction of flexible dentures, there are now various options available to restore your smile to its former glory. Whether you’re considering traditional dentures or the innovative flexible dentures, there’s a solution to fit your budget and lifestyle.

Here’s what you need to know about flexible dentures. 

What Are Flexible Dentures?

Dentures are dental devices used to replace some or all missing teeth. They are an alternative to traditional dentures and can be used to replace all or some of your teeth, depending on your needs. These dentures are made from porcelain, acrylic resin, metal, and plastic.

However, what sets flexible dentures apart is their construction from a thin thermoplastic material that can bend and flex to fit into your mouth comfortably.

Why Do You Need Flexible Dentures?

Teeth need to be strong enough to facilitate thorough chewing and comfortable eating. You shouldn’t be experiencing discomfort while eating, and the best dentures will do that for you while mimicking the feel of your natural teeth. This is where flexible partial dentures come into play.

The reason flexible dentures are so popular is because of how quickly gums adapt to the material. These dentures are manufactured using nylon which is less rigid than the typical denture materials and much lighter. 

The Benefits Of Flexible Dentures

If you’re still considering your teeth placement options, understanding the benefits of flexible dentures can be a game-changer.

  • One of the biggest significant benefits of flexible dentures is their adaptability. They quickly conform to the shape of your mouth, making them a perfect choice for those new to wearing dentures or those with irregularities in their oral structures.
  • Flexible dentures are designed to mimic the look of natural gums and teeth. They deliver a seamless, natural appearance, enhancing your smile without giving away the fact that you’re wearing dentures.
  • Unlike traditional dentures, flexible ones are highly resistant to wear and tear. The material they’re made from doesn’t scratch or stain easily, ensuring they retain their fresh look for longer.
  • Despite their flexible nature, these dentures are strong enough to handle all types of food. So, you can enjoy your favourite meals without worry, enhancing your overall quality of life.
  • Flexible dentures are easy to clean and maintain. Their smooth, nonporous surface doesn’t harbour bacteria, contributing to better oral health.
  • Flexible dentures are less likely to break or crack if accidentally dropped, thanks to the resilient materials used in their construction. This durability makes them a cost-effective choice in the long run.

Flexible Dentures Repair And Care

Your natural teeth require regular maintenance, and dentures are no different, whether you choose flexible dentures or traditional ones.

Though flexible dentures are durable, they are still delicate when it comes to the cleaning routine. You should pay them the same care as you would for a less durable traditional denture set.

Due to its flexibility, a flexible denture is prone to bacterial buildup, particularly around the base. This is perhaps the major disadvantage in opting for a flexible denture, but as long as you follow the proper maintenance routine, there won’t be an issue.

Just as you would clean your natural teeth twice a day; you should do the same with your dentures.

Your dentist will provide you with care instructions for your particular dental prosthetic.

  •       While it’s possible to keep your dentures in permanently, most dentists would encourage you to give your gums a break.
  •       Though they’re durable, you should still exercise caution if you’re eating particularly sticky, hard or hot foods. Chew thoroughly and slowly.
  •       Soak your dentures in the appropriate solution when you remove them, give them a gentle (but thorough) brush and rinse them well before you wear them again.

If you experience any issues with your flexible dentures, you should contact a trusted dentist to carry out flexible denture repairs.

From my first phone call to Tomika explaining my situation with my teeth and how bad they were and that I didn't know where to start, to having my first free appointment with Elias was the best thing I have ever done. Tomika is very easy to talk to, friendly and professional. Elias, well he is great, told me exactly what he could achieve, the cost and the timeframe and he was spot on. Read more

Elias prepared a full set of dentures for my 90 year old mother. The service he provided was exceptional, using current technology effectively to create a set of dentures which were far superior to what she had previously had. Elias also made it very clear that my mother could go back at any time if minor adjustments were required. He gives meticulous attention to detail. Tamika ensures that appointments run to time.

State of the art technology and skills and ability to match. I went to the clinic highly anxious ( my previous dental encounter at another clinic resulted in a panic attack and blacking out twice whilst in the chair) due to the poor integrity of my teeth, as a direct result of a health condition I had lost the majority of my teeth and the remaining were nothing short of a train wreck. Elias treated me the utmost respect and kindness. Read more

Faqs

A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth. At Aesthetic Dental and Denture Clinic, we offer two types of denture, complete and partial. Complete dentures are necessary when all your natural teeth are missing. A partial denture is used when some natural teeth remain. If you are having extractions, we can also provide you with an immediate denture. This is often an interim denture so you can avoid the embarrassment of being without teeth.

A denture usually lasts between five and seven years. Time and natural changes in the mouth will affect the fit and wear patterns of your denture. If your denture is worn and doesn’t fit as well as it used to, it may require a repair or reline. Having your denture checked every two years will help to ensure a proper fit and by following your denture care instructions, you’ll extend the life of your replacement teeth. 

Dentures don’t last forever. Dentures usually last between 5 to 7 years and need to be relined every 1 to 2 years. Over time dentures become worn and don’t fit as well, so it’s important to reline them regularly. The better you follow your denture care instructions, the longer your replacement teeth will last. 

It is advised that you visit your dentist every 6 months for a check-up and clean. This will help to prevent any major oral health issues from occurring. However, if you have bad breath, bleeding gums, discoloured teeth, cracked or chipped teeth, tooth or jaw pain it is advised to make an appointment with your dentist as soon as possible.

At Aesthetic Dental and Denture Clinic, we know attending the dentist can be difficult for nervous and anxious patients. We offer a number of options to help make your next visit as calm and stress-free as possible. Contact us today and a friendly dental technician will be able to give you all the options available.
